Once I was young and carefree
And thought I would never see
A grey hair or wrinkle on me
Oh my, I was wrong as could be.
Mornings when my alarm clock rings
I know it is time to hit the floor
I slowly roll over to slide off the bed
And feel every joint I have is sore.
I feel so many aches and pains
Can't help but wonder why
And I think I can do anything
But my body says don't even try.
I grab my soft comfy sweats
With elastic all the way around
I am shocked as I look in the mirror
At this older person I found.
I am no longer young and carefree
But I am as happy as I can be
Even though I am no longer thirty three
I know God loves and takes care of me.
